Kenny Powers, the series' protagonist, is the name of a real life Canadian daredevil who attempted one of the most idiotic stunts known to humankind. Powers sought to launch a rocket-propelled Lincoln Continental over a mile-wide section of the St. Lawrence River. The famously failed stunt was four years in the making and cost in excess of $1 million (US). See more »

just glorious
15 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This show is above and beyond what it deserves to be. What ought to be a dumb fun Danny McBride, Will Ferrell produced sports comedy vehicle is in fact a work of television genius.

I am in love with this show.

Every slow motion musical moment, every scene filled with such beautiful comedy and affecting drama. It is cast impeccably, each scene judged to perfection, and the score drifts you along, deep under it's trance. Each episode continues on from the last as if it were a 3 hour movie, and this, I feel, is how it is best viewed. I can not rate it highly enough. I only wish I could live forever, perhaps rather sadly in the warm glow of this series. It is an instant favourite.

If you want your life to be better, watch this show. I only hope there are people out there who can enjoy it on the level that I did.

Just glorious.
